Work closes aquatic cen­tre

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Mt Al­bert Aquatic Cen­tre will be closed from April 19 for ren­o­va­tions.

Works in­clude re­pairs to the roof, ex­te­rior and in­te­rior walls, pools, wa­ter fea­tures, chang­ing rooms, floor tiles, pumps, fil­ters and elec­tri­cal ser­vices.

‘‘Up­grad­ing the cen­tre will en­sure the fa­cil­ity is safe and op­er­a­tional for an­other five to 10 years,’’ Mt Al­bert Gram­mar School Com­mu­nity Swim­ming Pool Trust chair­woman Glenda Fryer says.

The works are ex­pected to take four months, though the 25m pool will be open ear­lier – around July 20 – to co­in­cide with the be­gin­ning of term three.

Leisure manager Rob McGee says there will be min­i­mal in­con­ve­nience for nearby or pass­ing res­i­dents. The pool opened in 1998 and about 340,000 peo­ple visit the cen­tre each year.
